Short-term Disability

Provided through the Retirement System, a full-time employee is covered after one year of employment. If the employee becomes disabled for longer than the 60-day elimination period, he or she may be eligible for the short-term disability benefit of 50% of the monthly salary up to a maximum of $3,000 per month. Short-term disability benefits are subject to FICA for the first six months and are payable for up to one year. Refer to long term disability.
